There have been many imitators, but there is only one duo in North America sanctioned by Dan Aykroyd and Judith Belushi to don the official hat and sunglasses and walk in the legendary footsteps of Jake and Elwood Blues.  Featuring Wayne Catania and Kieron Lafferty as Jake and Elwood, they capture the infectious humor and unbridled spirit of the Blues Brothers like no one since John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd walked the stage.

Backed by a hard-hitting, powerhouse band, Jake and Elwood give you a show to remember, packed with their classic hits from the Blues Brothers catalog, including Soul Man, Rubber Biscuit, Sweet Home Chicago, Gimme Some Lovin’, Rawhide, and more.  It’s a night of laughter and foot-stompin’ fun!

Wayne Catania - Jake Blues
Wayne is an established and respected musician (AFM), actor, and creative writer with a career spanning four decades. In the late 1970’s, Wayne’s resemblance to the late, great, John Belushi opened the door to showcasing his own formidable acting and musical talents onstage and onscreen. Joining ACTRA as a character actor, he was cast in numerous feature films, television shows, and international advertising campaigns. Wayne’s charismatic and animated physical style were instrumental in forming a persona that now complimented his achievements on the live music stage.

All of this has culminated in the opportunity to be cast as Jake Blues in the Classic Blues Brothers Stage Show—a part that Wayne is very specifically qualified for and passionate about and which is, in reality, the pinnacle of his life’s work. Wayne is now on the writing team with Judy Belushi Pisano, Anne Beatts (Saturday Night Live, Square Pegs) and stage partner Kieron Lafferty for a TV show based on the music and humor of Jake and Elwood.


Kieron Lafferty - Elwood Blues
Kieron is an actor, writer and musician from Toronto. He started his career as a singer songwriter, playing the Toronto club circuit where he gained a solid reputation for his soulful vocals and melodic harmonica lines. Kieron gained critical acclaim for the CD release of Seven Sisters followed by Boomtown. As an actor, Kieron has performed in film, TV and stage productions and has written scores for documentary film. Off stage, he puts his versatile vocal ability to work in commercials, narration, and animation. Music and acting came together when Kieron joined the cast of the award winning Las Vegas show ‘Legends in Concert’ as Elwood Blues.
